Global 6000 refurbishment and ACJ319 Ka-band contracts signed by AMAC


A privately owned ACJ319 is to arrive at AMAC Aerospace’s facility in Basel, Switzerland, at the beginning of March 2020, for a six-year check and the installation of a Ka-band antenna, using an STC that has already been used for many other aircraft of this type. AMAC is also contracted to install a Ka-band antenna on another private ACJ319 arriving in April 2020. In May 2020 the company is due to welcome a Bombardier Global 6000, which will undergo a cabin refurbishment and reconfiguration.

Other new contracts for the facility will see the arrival of a BBJ 737 ‘shortly’ for 1A and 2A checks in conjunction with an out-of-phase task; a Bombardier Global 5000 by the end of February 2020 for 15-month- and 750-hour checks with miscellaneous airworthiness directives and service bulletins; and an ACJ318 in March for 1A, 2A, 1C, 2C and 4C checks.

AMAC recently accomplished a six-month check on a BBJ 737 – the aircraft arrived at short notice and was released on time. The company also welcomed a head-of-state Gulfstream GV in January 2020 for an annual inspection.

Aircraft currently in the facility include a BBJ 737 undergoing C2 and 96-month checks; a Global 6000 on which AMAC will carry out a 500-/1000-hour check; and a G550 that arrived at the beginning of February 2020 for 1C, 2C, 3C, 6C and 72-month checks.

In other news, AMAC has received the ISO 45001-2018 certificate. The company emphasised that protecting the health and well-being of its employees is a highly important and integral part of its culture.
